Madrid International Trademark Registration
1. General Introduction:
When Madrid international trademark registrations are extended to China, the Chinese Trademark Office may make two types of refusal based on the Chinese Trademark Law: total refusal or partial refusal. Partial refusal is only applied to those refused goods/services, and the mark is still protected on other goods/services. If the trademark of a certain Madrid international trademark registration to be extended to China is descriptive to all the goods designated to use, the Trademark Office will make a total refusal. The request for review on refusal of a trademark of the Madrid international trademark registration should be filed according to the class with the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board. 2.
